-- It was difficult to tell my times on the analog clocks. Pretty sure I missed on #13 and skipped 14. The first few of these are so easy and then the quads start to burn.
Didn't kill it today; hoping to get a good workout in with one of my masters swimmers tomorrow at Pitt.
Having just discussed the topic of viewing your workouts negatively or positively, I read this blog post with interest: http://www.eetukarvonen.com
And another article on HIT training: http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2014/0...ef=health&_r=1. Small sample size but it does suggest that short bursts are better than longer efforts for endurance and that recovery is really important.
Article on stretching, I really think I need to do more of this (especially for fly): http://swimswam.com/3-reasons-why-st...ery-is-a-must/
